  1. General Motoring Discussion
    I just saw on the news a proposal for new cars to be fitted with systems which will automatically limit the vehicle speed to obey with speed limits. The AA have advised that the limiter would need to be able to be overridden in case of emergency scenarios or overtaking. Okay... Angry rant...
  2. Alfa Giulia
    This is just a mini rant, but trying to sort out some new insurance for my Giulia as my current insurer, LV, want £400. Only used the Go Compare comparison site so far and Esure and Sheila's Wheels are coming up with much lower quotes. Slight complication though is that I intend to fit QV...
  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Never in all my life of car owning (26 cars to date) have I come across a terrible door card design like the 916S2 incorporates. Getting it off - removal of large door speaker cover and speaker,4 screws on the peaker 2 screws retaining the door card behind,2 screws on the edge of the door, a...

  5. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I currently have my GTV up for sale and I really can't understand some people. I put the advert up on Wednesday evening since then I have had 7 "interested" people that have all asked the same question "is the car still for sale". All these have been by txt message and emails. I reply to...
  6. General Motoring Discussion
    Didn't know whether to rant on this or just make it an observation but.......On the A11, they are currently carrying out dualling works. Heading south towards one of the Thetford roundabouts, there are..... not one, not two.... but 3 massive yellow signs saying (with arrows) RHS lane for...
  7. Rant Room
    I've nothing against shopping per se. It has to be done or we don't eat, for example. But whilst we were away for a few days last week it was driven home just how everywhere has to have its own shopping experience. Every advert boasts of it's exciting shopping experience. You pay to go on a...
  8. Alfa GTA
    After a great drive up to Nottingham yesterday - dropping to 5th for traffic then accelerating back up to speed is a joy - I got in the car to drive back......misfire. Only slight, feels like when you hit standing water on the motorway - had the AA out and it barely registered on their...
  9. South Africa
    On the 15th of January 2013 I took my 159 in to Sandown Motors Tygerberg (previously a premier Jeep/Chrysler dealer) to attend to 3 problems: 1. Right hand side skirt was loose near the front wheel. Replace clips to secure. 2. Climate control sometimes doesn't switch back on when the car is...

    My fingers are sticking to my keyboard as I type this! It's just such horrible but necessary stuff :cry:
  11. South Africa
    Ok, I need insurance companies please... I just got very bad news from Honda sure for the Jazz. Apparently moving from a "dangerous area" like grassy park to the "safer area" Goodwood is enough to push UP your premium, even though the in Grassy Park the car stood outside under car port and now...
  12. Republic of Ireland
    top of the morning to you all :cheese:
  13. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My rant starts here.... Some may remember, I got rear ended in my Mrs commuter in March, my insurer at the time was A.Flux, My renewal was coming up soon, it was due in April. The crash was all settled and paid for as it was the other drivers fault, My renewal came through the door at nearly...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've just about had enough now. On Thursday my Gtv went in to have it's drivers side drive shaft cv joints regreased and new boots fitted. I took it to a highly recommended independent dealer. Today is the first time I'm driving the car since it returned on Friday. I discovered a huge patch of...
  15. ICE & Blue&Me
    So most of the time my B&M works fine with the odd glitch every now and again. But why oh why can I only finds that 'play' and 'stop' are voice control only, and that when I try to say 'stop' it struggles with my command? It really does annoy me, voice recognition tech isn't that great in my...
  16. Adrian Flux Insurance
    On the 25th September 2010 I took out insurance on the Puma, the annual premium was £300 give or take a few pence for TPFT Today I asked AF about swapping the insurance to my new car (BMW 528i SE). AF said that the annual premium for that car is £570 so to change over I have been quoted £223.04...

  18. South Africa
    Instead of posting your experiences about your dealings with the dealers in the parts an services thread I thought we could open a new one here specifically for our experiences with the dealers. I think it can be constructive for both the dealers and us consumers.
  19. South Africa
    :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant: I’m now totally fed up with some of our fellow drivers. I can’t handle it when these individuals clearly violate the traffic laws, yet feel that they have a high enough moral standing to insult and swear at other drivers that they have just wronged /...
